Hi Marisa, I live in san francisco (soma) too!

The quick answer is that content to openclipart.org is dedicated to
the public domain, meaning you don't have to ask permission to use it
for any purpose. Also, please note that clker.com takes
openclipart.org content wholesale, so we can't speak for any
alterations that project does to the content from our site,
openclipart.org. Also, I would add if you are concerned about the
legal status of works, please search the content out on
openclipart.org and contact the authors directly.
